the police in ferguson are gonna drag this out as long as possible because they’re smart enough to know that the longer it drags on, the less the media will cover it, the less people will care, and the less they have to be responsible for. they don’t want the conflict to end because if it ended now, there might still be some accountability demanded. they know if they can make it drag on for another week or more, that every day it continues they’re less and less likely to receive any punishment for human rights violations because public interest will continue to drop. they’re tiring out and exhausting any defiance or anger.

One year ago today was my first day in France. It feels like ages ago but also you’d be surprised how many mornings I still wake up expecting to be in Marseille when I open my eyes.

I guess today marks the end of the Most Exciting Year of My Life Thus Far: the year I went to France, the year I traveled to nine new countries, the year I moved into my first house, the year I graduated college, the year I moved to New York City. The most exciting, most challenging, most emotional year I have ever had. I know I said something similar when I got back to the US, but, even more so now, I am a completely different person than I was at this time last year.

Not even eleven on a Monday and I’m already in a heated argument with my coworker about Kanye
